About the book:

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel had an almost unbroken series of bestselling hits that spoke to the heart of their times. With Simon's brilliant songs and Garfunkel's stirring voice, the duo produced the flawless harmonies that thrilled a generation. This in-depth biography follows the two musicians from their Queens childhood and early days as Tom and Jerry to their role in the evolving folk-rock scene. Fame did not come quickly for the duo, but the surprise success of a remixed version of "The Sounds of Silence" changed their lives. Victoria Kingston traces their ascent through the pop world as they produced such classics as "Homeward Bound," "The Boxer," and "Bridge over Troubled Water." When the director Mike Nichols approached them to create the songs for his film The Graduate, they recorded "Mrs. Robinson," for which they won the first of many Grammy Awards. Simon & Garfunkel follows the duo through their breakup and subsequent solo careers, as well as through their legendary 1981 concert in Central Park and 1982 international reunion tour.
